The RFU is committed to assisting clubs improve the standard of coaching, and thus progress the sport in England.  In our drive to establish a world-class coaching service, we run a series of high-quality coach development programmes, alongside pioneering coach license and coach educator schemes.  Continuous personal development for coaches and those who train and assess them is vitally important.

The managing rugby – coaching pages also contain links to a coach recruitment forum and offers advice on appointing a Club Coach Coordinator, an individual dedicated to coach development.

An extensive coaching resource library is also available, useful for coaching ideas and sessions on all facets of the game.

Coaching Women's Rugby

Whether you are coaching men or women, the same principles apply. You do not require any specialist coaching qualification to coach women but you will have to register yourself and your staff using the RFUW Club Coaching Form (MS Word DOC 147kB).
